Windows 7: Unable to Acces Temp folder without admin rights

Unable to Acces Temp folder without admin rights

I think windows locked the temp folder from being accessed by any program without admin rights.
When opening a file from an archive with Winrar, it just get extracted in the same folder before it is opened.
Is temp folder locked down for non UAC applications??
But goto WinRAR and File properties and then enable Run as Administrator in Compatibility settings. Everything works normal.

The file is extracted in Temp folder before getting opened.
Is temp folder locked down for non UAC applications??

And also, MSI installers are shows up error until they are run as administrators through CMD. We know msi installers gets extracted in temp folder and then installs.

This has been happening since last one week. So My question is this. Did Windows stopped programs from accessing temp folder without admin rights. Is it time to disable UAC. Will Diasbling UAC affect system security.

As for disabling the UAC if only you are using it while you fish around then no it will not affect security per se'.
As for the other stuff mate lest see what disabling does first.
